7:08 am
negotiated with bangladesh on the issue based on the successful traditions we are now negotiating for the time. the trump administration is scrapping subsidies to health insurance companies in the latest aggressive move against obamacare comes after the us president took another step to undo his predecessor signature health care law while trump signed an executive order that let small businesses band together to buy cheaper health plans giving fewer benefits to their employees with more on this next big to the university of chicago professor of public so president trump now says he'll be cutting subsidies to health insurance providers that help low income people i mean how significant is this and why now oh it's very significant this could we to a real increase people's health insurance premiums and particularly for older people and for people with preexisting conditions and we could see substantially higher insurance premiums and also substantially higher payments by the federal government which for various complicated reasons well really the president terms
7:09 am
decisions you know he's just so determined to overturn his predecessors signature long he said you know taking this as basically a one way of undermining private insurance coverage of the affordable care act was blind yeah and as you say observers also say that without the subsidies insurance markets could quickly unravel with the soaring premiums and insurance companies leaving the online marketplace because insurance companies want to see market stability don't pay. they absolutely want to see market stability now ironically many of the people on these markets this is if they're low income they will be protected but if they are middle class people they will see or we'll increase in their premiums and president trump is banking on the idea that they will blame president obama for this and. it is quite and quite a serious situation for millions of people who need health insurance right now in
7:10 am
terms of the wind of politics i mean how much does president trump's decision amount to perhaps a rebuke to members of congress from both parties who seem to continue with the payments oh absolutely it's it is. it is an act of spite oh and to some extent it may be he may be hoping that this gets him bargaining leverage over democrats to make more concessions over obamacare or other matters but clearly this is something that insurance companies don't want on a c hospital patient groups almost all the interest groups involved in health insurance. are unhappy to night are these issues that are being that. and that's already been a backlash from democrats and republicans who see the ending of subsidy payments affecting people in their own constituencies. oh absolutely it is you know if you are an older person and particularly if you're in a middle class person and you are too much to get the kind of generous financial
7:11 am
help that that obamacare provides of low income people this is a big deal and it's also a big deal that president trump is is allowing more and more ways for young and healthy people to get out of the insurance pool with these older and less healthy people and then there's just no question that he's just done a whole series of things some of which are so comically obvious during the enrollment period for next year's insurance. department of health and human services announce that the computers are going to be down twelve hours every sunday you know for maintenance and they've cut back at ninety percent the advertising and then just a whole series of things that are designed to undermine the operation of the insurance market in this is tonight's decisions were the latest step but it's part of a whole series of things that prison trump is doing to try to damage this part of the health care law professor howell public thank you for talking to al jazeera. thank you so now the parents of
